We challenge every one of our students to be an engaged learner, and the impact of this approach can be seen throughout our program and beyond.

When our students engage in learning—fully, equitably, and meaningfully—they actively participate in their classroom and their community, think critically about big ideas, and take the lead in their own education.

As we support our students, their examples inspire us to consider what it means to engage others. Friends Groups and Ambassadors go hand in hand, sharing our story and growing our network of supporters across the globe.

From classrooms to community centers, Friends Groups and Ambassadors host events, give presentations, and inspire the next generation of Safe Passage supporters.

Who are Ambassadors?

If you have visited our program on a tour, spent short- or long-term service as a volunteer or traveled as a Support Team member, then you are eligible to become a Safe Passage Ambassador!

Like Friends Groups, Ambassadors act as community connections across the globe, sharing their Safe Passage story and serving as Safe Passage experts. Ambassadors can host events, speak in public, and provide valuable information to new Support Teams, visitors and volunteers—all on behalf of Safe Passage.
